Abstract


  • The Advanced Practice in Endoscopy Nursing

    (APEN) sub-project was undertaken in response

    to a national trend of increasing demand for endoscopy services, in part due to the

    implementation of the National Bowel Cancer

    Screening Program. The aim was to train nurses

    to perform endoscopic procedures previously only undertaken in Australia by doctors. Although

    new to Australia, nurse endoscopists are well established in the United Kingdom. Recently

    published evidence based on a systematic review

    of the literature indicates that nurses can

    achieve similar results for efficacy and safety to those achieved by doctors.
